For those of you complaining about Cryptic never making offerings for conventions in your country, why not do something about it?

Send BranFlakes a message informing him that the convention is taking place. The world is a big place, and I'd imagine Cryptic are too busy to spend time hunting down every convention in every country in the world (and I for one am happy for them to spend their time working on the game rather than doing this).

Perhaps this way you can get your DOFF, and the convention might get some exposure (at least on these forums if not the main site) which will help it in the long run.

Worth a thought?

I know there has been conventions/gatherings in my country, but those are rare from my understanding.

As I live in Europe, it's very expensive to go to the US conventions, and wile there are conventions in Europe, they are often expensive, and at bad times of the year.

If it was a big one in Scandinavia, I would be there, but I have never heard of any big ST conventions in Scandinavia...

The UK might be doable, depending on where it's held...

So, not as easy as you might think for other countries outside the US...

I'm outside the US myself. I realise that it's not easy, I was suggesting giving helping hands to Cryptic to make them aware of things going on around the world.

The US is a big place, there are lots of places here where they don't have conventions and people who live in those states would have to travel a large distance to attend one as well.

STO has a rather generous convention prize, they don't even have to go to the convention for attendees to get it, making them the only game I'm aware of that hands out their convention prize when they aren't in attendance. Imagine if Las Vegas or San Francisco where you only real options.

If players are someplace there aren't usually conventions, they can try writing to local fan groups and getting a petition together to get a convention added to a region.

At the end of the day convention prizes are for conventions, and if a player can't or won't attend a convention, they don't deserve the prize.
